Charges vary according to provider, but kept to the minimum possible.  Parents will be notified in advance.

Lost or damaged books

School reading books and library books are very valuable teaching resources.  It is important that they are handled with care so that all children can benefit from their use.  Should a book be lost or damaged, parent/carers will be asked to contribute to the replacement of the book.
